Tabuli

Submitted by: LAPISLAZOULI

Introduction

Unlike other tabuli recipes this one includes lettuce. So the bulgur is not as dominating. And don't skimp on the parsley! Very refreshing summer salad.

Ingredients

    Fine Bulgur, dry, 1.5 C.
    Water, 3 C.
    Parsley, minced, 2/3 C.
    Lettuce, 1 head (about 4 C. chopped
    Tomatoes, chopped, 3 medium
    Cucumber (with peel), chopped, 2
    Green Pepper, 1 (about 1/4 C. chopped)
    Fresh Mint, chopped, 5 sprigs (about 4 T)
    Olive Oil, 1/3 C
    Lemon Juice, from 2 lemons
    Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions

Soak bulgur in water (You can use hot water to speed the process).
Meanwhile chop all the vegetables and place in a very large salad bowl. You may vary the types and quantity of vegetables at will or according to the season.
Drain the bulgur and squeeze out as much water as possible by hand before adding it to the vegetables.
Season with olive oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste.

(I would normally use 1/2 C. olive oil for this recipe. I've reduced it to 1/3 to cut on fat grams).

  • I had this in a Mediterranean Restaurant and instead of mint and cucumber, it had onion and red bell pepper. I'm definitely going to try this at home! - 2/7/10
